Poster abstract Submission: May 4th, 2018
Camera-ready submission: May 14th, 2018
A substantial body of work from researchers around the globe has been
devoted to the development of Machine Learning techniques for a variety
of medical applications. Due to the risk sensitive nature of the
particular application area, the quantification of uncertainty in the
outputs of such techniques is of paramount importance. This renders
Conformal Prediction as a key tool for strengthening the impact that the
intelligent analysis of medical and biomedical data can have in
healthcare. Already several Conformal Prediction approaches have been
developed and have been shown to be extremely useful for tackling
particular medical problems.
The aim of this special session is to serve as a forum for the
presentation of new and ongoing work and the exchange of ideas between
researchers on the application of Conformal Prediction in medicine.
Authors are invited to submit original, English-language research
contributions or experience reports. Papers should be no longer than 20
pages formatted according to the well-known JMLR (Journal of Machine
Learning Research) style. Instructions for formatting JMLR papers are
All aspects of the submission and notification process will be handled
